Rush Limbaugh has launched an attack against the conservative media, the GOP leadership and House speaker Nancy Peloisi over their roles in the bailout rejection. The Crypt details the saga as it unfolds.

Ryan Grim from The Crypt follows the exploits of the opinionated broadcaster:

“Rush Limbaugh opened his show today by piling on top of House Republican leadership for claiming that a crucial number of their members voted against the bailout package because of a partisan speech that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) gave before the roll call.

“C’mon guys. Can ya grow up?” he said. “There were a whole lot of reasons for House Republicans to vote against this thing yesterday.”

He said Democrats never intended to pass it and GOPers likely realized that as they saw Democratic ‘no’ votes piling up during the vote. “It was a set-up from the get-go,” analyzed Limbaugh.”
